The Direct Line, running between Brockenhurst Lymington Junction) and Christchurch, a distance of about ten and half miles, was constructed between the years 1884 and 1888.
It was two years overdue in its completion; it led to the bankruptcy of a construction company and to the deaths of at least ten navvies and injuries to many more. But in its building it had a great impact on the lives of the local communities and brought about changes that have left a legacy that is felt up to the present day.
